ATLANTA - Dec. 13, 2023 - PRLog -- Acclaimed Atlanta photographer Ron Sherman's new book – titled Witness – A Photographic Essay of Humor and Heart – is available for purchase, through Mr. Sherman's website, The handsome, 144-page coffee table book – 10 inches by 12 inches, with a cloth-wrapped hard cover – features 98 images from Mr. Sherman's vast inventory of thousands of photographs, some of which are quite famous. Individuals, bookstores, libraries, colleges, universities and more are all invited to purchase the book.

"Witness – A Photographic Essay of Humor and Heart is a testament to my sixty years as a professional photographer documenting the people of Atlanta, of Georgia and much of the rest of the country," said Mr. Sherman, who grew up in Cleveland but has made Atlanta his home for the past five-plus decades.

Most of the subjects in the book were available for a very short time, but enough time to allow him to finish his assignments.  They included such luminaries as Jimmy Carter, Coretta Scott King, Hank Aaron, Muhammad Ali, Maynard Jackson and Andrew Young, among many others.

"But," Sherman pointed out, "fireman Buzzard Sewell, Atlanta policeman Chester Head, singer Arlo Guthrie or activist Huey Newton are people some may have never heard of, but they will see them in my book."

In the book's pages, people will experience the evolution of Atlanta and meet some of the city's most notable public figures, from Jimmy Carter to Coretta Scott King to Ted Turner, and witness the celebration as Henry Aaron rounded the bases after breaking Babe Ruth's home run record at Atlanta's Fulton County Stadium in 1974.

The 4 foot by 5 foot enlargement of that iconic Hank Aaron photograph is perhaps the book's most recognizable image, showing the legendary slugger being congratulated by two exuberant fans as he jogs from second to third base on his way to baseball immortality in 1974. It's now on display at Major League Baseball's Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.

Witness is Mr. Sherman's fifth book effort. Three of the previous four were corporate sponsored, while the fourth, published in 2013, had a Canadian publisher. All were photographic retrospectives, with an emphasis on Atlanta. "The new book is self-published," he said, "because I wanted complete control over its production. I consider it my finest work."
